We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Saturday's matches.
Portsmouth to beat Accrington (15:00)
Portsmouth made it 10 games without defeat as they drew 2-2 with third-placed Peterborough last Saturday.
They have taken 15 points from a possible 21 in the league and have won five of their six games against the current bottom eight.
Accrington drew 1-1 away to strugglers Tranmere last weekend and have managed just three victories in their last 14 league games.
Oxford to beat MK Dons (15:00)
Third-bottom MK Dons are winless in 12 league games and are three points from safety following their 1-1 draw at Doncaster last weekend.
MK have picked up just two points in that sequence – fewer than any other side in League One.

Scunthorpe to beat Colchester (15:00)
Scunthorpe have found form after a dreadful start to the season, winning each of their last five in all competitions.
That sequence includes three league victories, while they have also beaten top-three sides Exeter and Forest Green in their last six.
Colchester scored a stoppage-time winner to beat Salford 1-0 at home last weekend, but have won just two of their last five.
Marseille to beat Metz (16:30)
Marseille stayed second in Ligue 1 and maintained the five-point gap to Paris Saint-Germain following their 3-1 victory at home to Bordeaux.
Andre Villas-Boas’ side have won six on the bounce in the league and should make it seven against out-of-form opposition.
Metz were thumped 4-1 by Nice on Saturday and haven’t won any of their last eight in all competitions.
RB Leipzig to beat Dusseldorf & over 2.5 goals (17:30)
RB Leipzig beat Hoffenheim 3-1 last weekend and come into this on the back of a five-match winning streak in the Bundesliga.
The Red Bulls have scored three or more in each of those victories and even hit Mainz for eight at the start of November.
Dusseldorf are third-bottom and have lost 5-0 and 4-0 to Dortmund and Bayern Munich respectively in their last three matches.
Southend v Rotherham (15:00)
Despite their dreadful form continuing under Sol Campbell, Southend have at least scored in eight of their last 10 matches.
BTTS has landed in all of those games, including a 4-2 defeat at Bristol Rovers last weekend.
